We don't always hear about fishing activity in North Korean or Russian waters, especially as a North American-focused media agency; however, I wanted to cover some news about the areas as it was published on the Global Fishing Watch website (https://globalfishingwatch.org/).

The organization conducted a study that looked at illegal fishing activity in North Korean waters (by Chinese fishing vessels) and illegal fishing in Russian waters (by North Korean fishing vessels).

The conclusion was that illegal fishing is active in both areas without any changes in activity in 2019 or the beginning of 2020. 

Listen to the episode to find out more details.

Do you think recent changes to Chinese distant-water fishing practices (discussed during the episode) will decrease illegal fishing in North Korean water? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
